When designing a new mechanical part, prototyping its manufacturing process, monitoring quality on the production line, or inspecting it after it fails, X-ray CT combined with software applications allows engineers to optimize their design, increase production quality, and quickly fix a possible design flaw.
Avizo software allows for detection and quantification of porosity: distribution, clustering, closest pore, distance to surface of the part), corrosion, cracks in metal alloys or polymer parts, delamination, gluing issues, change of density, or voids in the matrix in a composite material part, for instance.
Avizo software can measure wall thickness and import CAD models to perform surface deviation analysis.
